    i copied the PHP-Source Code for lib-custom.php
    but then i get an parse error just where i included the code:

    Parse error: parse error in /Library/WebServer/Do*censored*ents/
    system/lib-custom.php on line 102

    Warning: Cannot add header information – headers already sent by
    (output started at /Library/WebServer/Do*censored*ents/geeklog/system/

    Warning: Cannot add header information – headers already sent by

    custom.php:103) in /

    any hints?

    Sounds like you might have to edit the carriage returns – make sure each line of code stays on one line and doesn\’t wrap to the line below. This could be an error of the .phps auto-file formatting.

    sounds like it must be a typo, like for example if the netgeo.php class wasn\’t saved properly and therefore can\’t instantiate. Try executing a copy of the class directly in your webroot. btw: how does PHPkitchen look on a mac – dog\’s dinner i bet?

    Heh, I wonder if Geeklog censors it also when you copy it down. See the
    Do*censored*ents. Cool, btw., that I am not the only one running it on
    Mac OS X.

    Liked the “Big Brother” script, so I grabbed Manuel Lemos class from and added a couple of functions… (see index.php).
    Note: This is the standard class…  you’ll be able to make it “geeklog” friendly. 😉
    1) Converts the country-codes to country name
    2) Added a function for IP checking…..
    and the code is now XHTML happy!!
    Grab the zip file here.
    Upload to server… and open index.php.
